LeBron James comic

Marvel’s new LeBron James comic book is out there. Literally.


Honestly, I’m not quite sure what to say here.

We’ll start at the beginning: Marvel and ESPN have teamed up for a new LeBron James comic book, which you can now check out on your iPad or Internet enabled device of choice. This has been in the works for a while and is titled “LeBron: King of the Rings.”

It’s about everything LeBron has to do to keep winning those rings he talked about back at that 2010 pep rally. But it’s played very over-the-top, tongue firmly implanted in cheek, which makes it sort of work for me. I mean, it’s hard to go wrong with zombie Shane Battier. Or Russell Westbrook adding a robot arm. Or.. I don’t want to spoil it, but you get the idea.

I’ll be up front here, my expectations of this were so low it was going to be hard for this to live down to them. It didn’t. Did that make it good? Kind of an “eye of the beholder” thing and as I feel like I’m not the target demographic here so I’m not going to give it a big thumbs up or down. I tend to think Marvel comic characters are more interesting (than say DC) because they are flawed, but that really was not going to happen here. That is not the goal. So it is what it is.

A backhanded compliment of “not as bad as I expected” sounds more fitting for me. You may feel differently one way or the other.

Just check it out for yourself.

Bradley Beal drives around, dunks over Kristaps Porzingis (VIDEO)

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
